The Butcher of Hollywood.
7 September 2010 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

Miriam Hopkins plays an aging,drunken and washed-out movie queen living in a decaying mansion in Hollywood Hills,California.Her nurse is a psychotic young man who enjoys murdering and dismembering women with a sharp meat-cleaver.There is an interesting contrast between Old Hollywood and New Hollywood in low-budget proto-slasher "The Savage Intruder" by Donald Wolfe.The atmosphere of late 60's Hollywood's decadence is well-captured and the acting is decent.Unfortunately the pace is slow and there is not enough suspense.The killings are pretty gory and the climax is twisted.If you are a slasher completist you should give "The Savage Intruder" a chance.7 out of 10 for this cheesy curio.
